Shipment tracking is incredibly complicated, unreliable and expensive. Tive is changing that by providing real-time visibility into the entire shipment process, including hyper-accurate location data and condition insights such as temperature, shock, light exposure and humidity. Tive’s release of the industry’s first 5G-ready single-use tracker was met with intense market interest and approval. Customer adoption is on the rise with aggressive growth in new customers and 570% growth in annual revenue, driven in part by the delivery of the first Non-Lithium powered tracker to address the market’s concerns over Lithium-Ion safety and environmental impact.
“The $20 trillion shipping industry is starting to expect more,” said Raju Rishi, General Partner at RRE Ventures. “They are rapidly adopting Tive to gain real-time insights on their shipments, giving them a level of visibility not yet seen before in the industry as well as a new window of opportunity to actually intervene if shipments are being improperly handled. Over the four years we’ve known Krenar, we’ve seen Tive’s full-stack tracking solution be aggressively pulled into the market by a diverse customer base and we’re proud to be backing him and his team as they build a category-defining company in supply chain tracking.”
“Given the growing demand for Tive’s full line of tracking solutions, it was obvious that now was the time to dramatically expand our ability to meet industry demand,” said Krenar Komoni, CEO at Tive, Inc. “Gaining the support of RRE Ventures and Two Sigma Ventures, as well as our current valued investors, means we can leverage their expertise and focus on growing our customer-centric platform. The infusion of growth capital means bringing products to market faster, enhancing our sales and marketing efforts, adding key leadership, and growing our international presence.”
